Introduction to Understanding Society

This course is aimed at new users of Understanding Society, as well as those who have so far only made use of simpler aspects of the data. It aims to guide the user through the complexities of using this data for cross-sectional and longitudinal analysis, and ensure that they can make effective use of the data for their own research projects.

The course is free to attend and includes lunch and refreshments.

MiSoC training course: An introduction to machine learning for causal analysis using observational data

This one-day workshop will

  • Introduce the basic principles of causal modelling (potential outcomes, graphs, causal effects) while emphasising the key role of design and assumptions in obtaining robust estimates.
  • Introduce the basic principles of machine learning and the use of machine learning methods to do causal inference (e.g. methods stemming from domain adaptation and propensity scores).
  • Show how to implement these techniques for causal analysis and interpret the results in illustrative examples.

MiSoC Workshop on Subjective Expectations

The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers using subjective expectations in their work and to foster and stimulate the exchange of ideas. The workshop is the sixth in a series of workshops on Subjective Expectations. Previous workshops have been held at Université Laval in Québec city (2009 and 2011), the University of Essex (2014), New York Federal Reserve Bank (2016), and CESifo in Munich (2018).

Event
Using neighbourhood data in Understanding Society

The course is open to early career and postgraduate researchers from all disciplines and policy fields.

The course will be delivered as a combination of short lectures followed by practical in the computer lab. The course will be based on a series of hands-on-examples using Understanding Society neighbourhood data in Stata. There will be time for discussion and Q&A.
